    I'm already burning 2+ bags a day set on #3. This thing drops pellets constantly but it is running pretty clean best I can tell for a newbie.

    Yep, They sure can eat em. I have a stat on mine cause if I ran it on manual I'd be roasting my can with the ducting added. Stat saves me some I'm about 1 1/2 bags/day in this weather. 20 ::F and lower I'm over 2 bags/day. -20 ::F I have seen 3 bags/day. Luckily we don't see many of them days.

    Even with Heat Setting at #2 and Feed Rate at #1 it still seems to chew the pellets. I burned 5 bags in 48Hrs mostly at 3/2 setting.

    Maybe next season if I do duct work or even just floor vents it will make a difference. I have my basement door open with one fan blowing from across the basement towards door.

    Try putting the fan at the top of the steps, blowing down. Moving cold air, is easier than moving warm air.

    By blowing the cold air towards the stove, its replaced by quick rising warm air.

    Thats why ceiling fans are reversed in Winter. Bring the cold air up to the warm air, the warm air travels down the side back to replace the cold.

    It works.

    Been over 5 days running now and still pretty clean (little ash at topsides of window). Took your advise DexterDay, and placed a fan blowing down the stairs. Running on heat setting #3 First floor got 74* and on Heat setting #2 over-night got down to *67.

    Sounds like your enjoying the new toy and its doing a good job at its chore. Air wash on these are something aren't they? I have gone over 50 bags and it was still clear on the bottom so I could see the fire.

    I have done what some others have done with there Maxx and placed ducting in front of the stove to the upstairs.I also installed a fan from a wood stove that I got at TSC into my furnace duct and it grabs the warm air in the basement and blows it up stairs.Works great.I am heating both levels of my 1200 sq ft bungalo with 11/2 bags a day even when its been -15c here in southern Ontario.Have cut my heating oil bill by 60%.
